Mustard Sauce


  • In a large mixing bowl, add blue crab meat, eggs, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, mayonnaise, worcestershire sauce, baking powder, fresh parsley, and old bay seasoning.
  • Stir to mix well.
  • Place a large skillet over medium/high heat.
  • In the skillet, add canola oil to heat.
  • Drop tablespoons of batter in skillet, carefully. The crab cakes should be approximately 1½ inches wide.
  • Cook approximately 2 minutes, then using a spatula, flip the crab cakes over and cook the other side for approximately 1 minute, or until firm.

For the Sauce:

  • In a small mixing bowl, add mayonnaise, mustard, and lemon juice.
  • Stir to mix well.
  • Store sauce in the refrigerator until serving.


The crab mix will be loose when you drop it in the pan. The eggs act as a binding agent, so they will firm up, and hold together as they cook.
